The tale of our fifth anniversary

You all know we celebrated our anniversary this month. Lemon woke me up at 12 o’clock in the night with gifts. I got a nice bouquet, a J’dore perfume, a teddy bear and a cheesecake. I even wrote this nice letter to him.

All was fine that entire day. Some people called. Some people wrote. Some other people just remembered. Work was nice all along. Colleagues wished. Lunch was awesome and when evening was just approaching, Lemon called and asked me to come home early. So, I left a bit early, picked up Lime and went home just in time for Lemon’s plan. We were so hungry so he first took me an Indian Restaurant and we ate chat to our hearts content. Then he took me to New York and Company and asked me to get whatever I want.

After shopping we were hungry again and he told me he had booked a dinner table at a nice restaurant. We made it there on time. The fondue was great. Lime liked it too. Everything was so good until this moment. 

A waitress walked to our table with dessert [cake] with a candle and said, “Happy Birthday!”.

Wait! What? 

I first got all excited seeing the cake and candle. But was shocked to hear “happy birthday“. Lemon had booked a dinner table for ‘birthday‘ instead of ‘anniversary‘!!!

 I threw my evil look at Lemon. And all Lemon did at that moment was give me a wicked embarrassed laugh. And all Lime did was joined the waitress and sang ‘happy birthdayyy mommyyy… happy birthday mommyy…” huh! What do I do with my boys? I couldn’t embarrass the husband in front of the waitress so I kept quite. But despite my initial anger, I ended up laughing soon. 

But how could he do this? Isn’t it just unfair? On our way back home, I let him sweat out a bit before I finally calmed down. And then I made up my mind to write it here today… just for the records..

“happy birthday’ wish on my anniversary!!

Half a decade with the one I love

Dear Lemon,

We turn 5 years old today.Every year, when the clock strikes 12, you would wake me up with gifts in your hand. And I have saved them all since our first.

I look at our journey so far and realize that we are still the best-est couple! We fight with each other at least once a day. We are not very responsible. We throw our clothes all around the house. We argue in front of Lime. We order food every other day. And, you wake up really really late everyday. You still hate Carnatic  music and I still hate eating or even trying other cuisines. I hate you being so attached to your laptop and TV and you hate me shopping. But I also love the way you help me with everything. How you care about me and Lime. How you make sure we both are okay. How you ask us what we want. How you bear with my euphoria. How you do not mind my mood swings.

All in all, in the last years we have not changed much. You are still the same lazy boy and I am the same awesome girl!!

Now, here we are after 5 years of marriage. We have lots to celebrate and lots to look forward to. Cheers to the second half of this decade and many many more to come. Experience has taught me that everyone will have more arguments, more difference of opinions and other tough periods in their marriage life. What I hope and believe is that we will never lose sight of how much we love each other.

Life has been an incredible awesome adventure so far and I know I would not have come through this journey with anyone else. Thank you for making life so exciting and so magical. 

Happy fifth! Love you, Lemon! Always have, always will.

Cock-A-Hoop

Yes! I did it!! Yay!!! It is so hard to believe that I truly managed to complete this Blogathon! On day 1, January 1, 2015 Lemon was like are you crazy? Why are you even taking this up? Sigh! Little did he know that I can will write.  Even though the thought of writing everyday seemed like a threat, I knew deep down my heart that I CAN finish this.

Infrequent blogging has always disturbed me and I have often said I will be more regular in many of my posts. And today, here I am with 31 posts in 31 days! THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF MY BLOGGING. I am so happy!! 

This blogathon has been so good.

I have learnt that I CAN write.
I have learnt that I CAN post everyday.
I have learnt that I CAN find time to post even during my busy days.
And most of all, I now have more friends in the blogosphere.

Phew! I guess I have been very sincere towards my goal. Someone please send me an award soon!! :P

Thank you, Seema for initiating this.

Google Horror

A fun activity of mine is to check blog statistics and know what directed people to my very own page. I am going to talk to all those people today through this post. And for that I have chosen some of the popular search engine terms that have led people here.

Why would Google direct some of them here while they searched for some strange strings of words?? I have no idea!! 

To the person who came to by blog by searching…

1. ‘A letter to my father’ / ‘Letter for my father’ – Hey! You guys visit this space so often. I want to know why. What’s so special about this post? All of you are trying to write a letter to your dad or what? Tell me please.

2. ‘Network’ – Seriously? I dont know how google directed you to my blog for this search term. Anyways, if you wanted to network, why dint you say ‘Hi’ to me?

3. ‘Nostalgia’ – What are you nostalgic about? I hope you found some satisfying information around here. I am just going to wish you good luck.

4. ‘Lavender’ – *big grin* Were you guys searching for me? Or the color? Or the flower? What did you actually search for?

5. ‘Amazing Person’ – All you guys, thanks for stopping by!

6. ‘ Muhurtham Saree’ – To all of you people who came here searching for ‘Muhurtham Saree‘, I’d suggest that you go to RMKV / Pothys / Rangoli Sarees in Chennai.

7. ‘Maniaana Oru Padal Venum’ – Did you like that song? I love it!

6. ‘Wooden footbridge in the sky’ - Seriously, guys? How did you land here?

6. ‘I love you’ – Hmm.. strange! Should I say, I love you too? :P
